On Friday, November 17, 2017 at 5:23 p.m., officers assigned to the Jurupa Valley Police Department responded to the area of Galena Avenue and Avon Street, regarding a major-injury traffic collision.  The preliminary investigation revealed a vehicle traveling westbound on Galena Avenue stuck a pedestrian who was crossing Galena Avenue, just west of Avon Street. The pedestrian was pronounced deceased on scene by paramedics.  This investigation is ongoing, but alcohol and/or drug impairment does not appear to be a factor in this collision.

The Jurupa Valley Police Department’s Traffic Collision Reconstruction Team responded to the scene to conduct this investigation.  This investigation is ongoing and we are asking anyone with additional information to contact Deputy Adam Ditfurth at the Jurupa Valley Station at 951-955-2600
